Page 1 of 21

When those Monday morning blues start wearing you down, you know it’s time to shake those legs to some of the most uplifting songs of all time. Now, we all know that music taste is highly subjective and the list I’ve put together will in no way cover everyone’s favorites, but I’m confident that it will at the very least put a smile on your face.

One Hit Wonders of the 90s

Contrary to the article we published earlier about the 10 most popular songs of all time, this piece features well-known classics and some pretty epic celebratory tunes, but there are also a few less well-known gems that may catapult your brain into a state of pure joy. From rock-and-roll to pop, and from indie rock to dance music, every genre has its golden tracks that will inevitably lift your mood.

Bob Marley once said that one good thing about music is that “when it hits you, you feel no pain”. I believe this to be true, but more so, that melodies can heal you from whatever pain, sadness or anger you’re experiencing – at least temporarily. So, if you could use a smile today, check out my version of the most uplifting songs of all time (the order of the songs is arbitrary).

Warning: yelling out lyrics, hair tossing, and involuntary hip shaking and arm-whirling may occur (and is recommended).
